SLICE AND DICE: THE SLASHER FILM FOREVER

FEATURING AN ALL STAR CAST OF HORROR LEGENDS. Pre release screening.

Ever since Alfred Hitchcock created Psycho in 1960 the story of a weapon-wielding madman – stalking and slaughtering helpless victims – has become a fixture of fear flicks and bludgeoned bombastic box office takings worldwide. Slice and Dice: The Slasher Film Forever takes an often irreverent look at this much-maligned, and frequently misunderstood, genre with commentary from some of the form’s most celebrated filmmakers including Mick Garris (Masters of Horror), Adam Green (Hatchet), Tom Holland (Child’s Play), Tobe Hooper (The Texas Chain Saw Massacre), Patrick Lussier (My Bloody Valentine 3D) and Scott Spiegel (Intruder).

The director and producer team will be with us to offer up some giveaways!

INTRUDER

FEATURING SAM AND TED RAIMI and BRUCE CAMPBELL

The ex-boyfriend of a check-out girl at a supermarket shows up at closing time to cause trouble. Following a quarrel, he is ejected from the store. That night, the staff stay behind for a stock check, but there is someone else in the building. Someone with murderous intentions.

Probably the last true slasher flick of the ’80?s, written and directed by long-time Sam Raimi, Coen Brothers, and Eli Roth associate, Scott Spiegel from a story by RESERVOIR DOGS and PULP FICTION producer Lawrence Bender, this oft-overlooked genre gem combines a deliciously dark sense of humour, strikingly stylish and inventive camerawork, and some truly eye-popping gore FX, in a truly twisted take on the retail trade.

ENTITY (2012)

We are delighted to be hosting the Northwest premiere of Steve Stone’s ENTITY, followed by Q+A with the film makers. ‘How to produce a successful low budget horror movie’.

Starring: Dervla Kirwan, Charlotte Riley and Branko Tomovic

In 1998, 34 unidentified bodies were found in shallow graves in a remote Siberian forest. No official explanation by the Russian authorities was ever offered. In 2010, the mystery attracted the interest of the producers of ‘Darkest Secrets’, a British TV show which revisits the sites of unsolved crimes with a professional psychic whose extraordinary powers may help shed new light on cold cases. A small TV were sent out to Siberia to investigate. Nothing was heard from them again. This is the story of what happened to them…

With its strong use of creepy, location and jarring, unnerving sound design, ENTITY is a master class in sustained, escalating tension, and claustrophobia, with some genuinely dark and disturbing twists.

I DIDN’T COME HERE TO DIE (2010)

The story of six young volunteers working on a humanitarian project in the woods. Horrific accidents, rash decisions and the unpredictability of human nature leads them all to the same disturbing conclusion. Volunteer work can be a killer.

This is the debut feature for Writer/Director Bradley Scott Sullivan and is a fantastic homage to the great slashers from the 1980’s . Made in 2010 but only now getting a release through the fantastic SecondSight films please read my review here for more info – http://www.thecorpsegrinder.wordpress.com/2013/02/17/i-didnt-come-here-to-die-2010-review

 

Thursday 4th April, Stockport Plaza (7.15pm start)

SCANNERS & THE BROOD

These days, David Cronenberg is a critically-acclaimed director, working with award-winning actors, feted by film festivals and awards bodies around the world. But it wasn’t always so. Back in the 70s and 80s he was very much a cult figure, using the horror genre in radical new ways. We’re delighted to be presenting a couple of cult classics from that period in his career.

Scanners-200x300

SCANNERS (1981 –  remastered in HD): Troubled psychic Cameron Vale finds himself recruited to help destroy an underground movement of his fellow psychics, or Scanners, headed by he megalomaniac Darryl Revok…Cronenberg’s stark noirish, paranoid science fiction conspiracy thriller about feuding psychics combines sly social commentary about the marginalisation of the politically subversive and the mentally ill with pyrotecnic displays of psychic violence – including the famous exploding head scenes.

brood_poster_01-199x300

 

THE BROOD (1979 – Remastered in HD): An estranged husband struggles to discover the exact nature of the therapy being employed on his institutionalised wife by an unconventional doctor. Does it have any connection with a serious of violent attacks in the region that seem to have been carried out by a gang of children. Cronenberg’s reaction to his own divorce and child custody battle is a disturbing, angry allegory about 70s therapy culture, feminist rage, emasculation anxiety, and the traumas of parenthood.

 

 

So that is Easter sorted then. For one price you can see SIX modern and classic films on the fantastic BIG SCREEN at The Stockport Plaza which is a delight to attend. A beautiful art deco building that gives a wonderful atmosphere and superb viewing experience. Drinks can be bought AND enjoyed whilst watching the films in a relaxed adult setting.

Please support the guys and gals at Grimm Up North with their wonderful screenings or its back to Cineworld Stockport with its beautiful 1990’s breezeblock exterior and feet stuck to the floor ambience .
